Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For ἔξοδος in contrast with εἴσοδος see s.v. εἴσοδος, and note further P Leid R.4 where ε ]ἰσόδου κ [αὶ ] ἐξόδου refer to ";income"; and ";expenditure"; : so Michel 1001vi. 34 (c. B.C. 200). Similarly ἐξοδιάζω and ἐξοδιασμός are common = ";pay"; and ";payment."; Cf. MGr ἔξοδα, ";expenses,"; ἐξοδεύω, ξοδεύω, ξοδιάζω, ";spend."; In BGU IV. 1105.24 (c. B.C. 10) ἔξοδος = ";divorce,"; in ib. I. 168.15, .16 (A.D. 169) = ";judicial decision,"; and in P Oxy XII. 1417.9 (early iv/A.D.) apparently = ";voyage."; For the word = ";death,"; as in Luke 9:31, 2 Peter 1:15, see the Will of Abraham, Bishop of Hermonthis, about the end of vi/A.D.—P Lond 77.57 (= I. p. 234, Chrest. II. p. 372) κελεύω μετὰ τὴν ἐμὴν ἔξοδον τοῦ βίου τὴν περιστολὴν τοῦ ἐμοῦ σώματος κτλ., and cf. Epict. iv. 4. 38 ὅρα ὅτι δεῖ σε δουλεύειν ἀεὶ τῷ δυναμένῳ σοι διαπράξασθαι τὴν ἔξοδον, τῷ πάντως ἐμποδίσαι δυναμένῳ κἀκεῖνον θεραπεύειν ὡς Κακοδαίμονα : see further ExpT xviii. p. 237.
